    Next year I'll have a 2nd and a 4th grader, and up until this point, we have done no formal science... we've done a few unit studies and have been very interest-led, but I'm thinking that we should start an actual curriculum now.

    Any recommendations? I'd use the same program for both of them and would just scale it up or down as needed. I could go with either a Christian or a secular curriculum, and prefer something that's not too spendy. ;)

    I am planning to use this

    I am hoping that it will be a gentle intro to more formal science study and the best thing is it is a free download.

    I am using it with a 5th, 3rd and 1st grader next year.

    I will admit that this also looks interesting too.

    We have used and loved Apologia's Elementary science curriculum. It was a LOT of fun for all 4 of mine. We kept notebooks, using the pages off of the Jeannie Fulbright website.

    We've just started using Real Science 4 Kids and are enjoying it, too.

    Both are good and thorough, I felt.
